Visiting Greece, Secretary of State Hillary emphasized the United States' strong support for the Greek government's tough new austerity measures, adopted to try and keep the country from completely falling apart financially.
Clinton said that Greece can rely upon unequivocal US support in its efforts to emerge from a debt crisis that has rattled the world's economy.
"We stand by the people and government of Greece as you put your country back on the path to economic stability and prosperity."
She praised the government for its determination to impose a large number of tough measures meant to curb the country's out of control spending and borrowing.
Wise words. One might ask, why isn't she saying them to her boss?
